Hi This machine uses the standard class 15 bobbin. It sits inside a bobbin case that has a finger that needs to be located in a retaining slot. It the whole lot, bobbin, case, hook assembly and retainer have come out simply turn the machine over so that these parts can be fitted downwards. fit the hook, then the retainer and lock it into position. Put bobbin into case pull thread under spring. Lift tab on case and put it over the hook's central pin and release tab. It should now be locked in position
Well you may please follow the steps below - 1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine. 2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine. 3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin. 4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin. 5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin. 6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover. 7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew. Good Luck!!
Perhaps remove the bobbin case and check that you have put it back correctly. Check with the sewing machine manual to see how it is done correctly. Make sure that the top of the bobbin case is at the top of the bobbin case holder and make sure you change the needle as it will probably be dull or bent from hitting the metal of the bobbin case.
put the bobbin in its case then pull some thread out and pass it thru the bobbin case slot and under the tension spring .. put the bobbin and case over the shaft that is in the main unit .. the open side of the case goes in first .. make sure the bobbin doesnt fall out .. rotate the bobbin case until its finger lines up with the notch in the main case .. the bobbin case should latch in place on the shaft notch .. place the top thread under and to the back of the pressure foot then turn the machine one turn .. that will loop the top thread around the bottom (bobbin) thread ... now use a card or screwdriver to push both threads from under the pressure foot toward the back of the machine ..
According to the manual, this is a drop-in bobbin.
If the bobbin case came loose, the needle would probably hit it and brake.
Take the bobbin out.
Turn of the power and remove the needle plate (under the presser foot).
Raise the needle to it's highest position and lift out and reset the bobbin case into the shuttle. This should be in the maintenance section of the manual. The bobbin case should fit snug.
Make sure the thread is feeding from the bobbin, counter-clockwise and through the guides on the bobbin case.
For a rotary bobbin with a metal bobbin case.
Remove the bobbin case. Make sure the thread is feeding clock-wise and through the guide on the side of the bobbin case.
Raise the needle to it's highest position - this puts the hook at the lower left. Left the tab on the back of the bobbin case and slip the bobbin case back into the shuttle with the "arm" straight up. You may have to move the bobbin case a bit to the left or right for it to snap into place.
If the problem persits, take the machine back to the dealer - there should not be a charge for fixing this as it is brand new - keep your receipt and warranty information at hand.
I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.
I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!
